The incident which witnessed that BJP Lawmaker was yelling at the court staff because of lack of proper sitting facility & clean chair was told the reporters by Special NIA Public Prosecutor Avinash Rasal by quoting,
"Special NIA Judge Vinod Padlakar repeatedly asked her to sit anywhere she likes but she declined the offer and stood near the window throughout the course of the proceedings."
Moreover, Sadhvi Thakur remained standing throughout the closure of proceedings of that day & as soon as the judge left the chamber at 5.15 PM she hollered at the court staff by exclaiming,
"If you had called me to the court, you should have at least provided me with a chair to sit. Till I am convicted, I have the right to sit. You can hang me after I am convicted in this case.
This incident has raised various enumerations in respect of environment provided in the court premises and it is to be looked upon how the Court’s Administration takes further action to cope up with the issues posed by the Member of Parliament, in the times to come and how it will be addressed throughout the Courts of Law in the entire Nation.
